For historical information, photo examples, and suggested wearing styles for our pocket watch chains, please visit our "How To Wear" Guide.
Our example photos show our items against a backdrop created from a men's medium-sized vest. Depending on the style you are looking to create with your chain, we offer that for someone with a slender build or short to average height, you can expect the shown item to hang off your person similar to the photo. If you have a larger build or are taller than average, please note the chain will hang differently off your person than shown.

As a rule of thumb, on an average-build male, we suggest straight or Albert style chains 10" or shorter for heights under 5'8", 10" to 14" for heights 5'8" to 6'2" and 14" or longer for heights over 6'2". For Double Albert chain styles, we suggest 20" or shorter for heights under 5'8", 18" to 30" for heights 5'8" to 6'2" and 24" or longer for heights over 6'2".
Please note: this pocket watch chain and fob combination is a matched set; however, we may offer the option of purchasing the chain or fob separately; if so, the drop-down menu above gives individual prices and allows you to select your desired choice or combination.

For your gift giving convenience, please find a consolidated overview of the information on this item, with no reference to the price, on this printer-optimized page.
